Not making ice fast enough


Good day,
Assuming the cubes it's making are the proper size, the speed the ice maker produces ice is determined by the temperature in the freezer.
When the ice maker harvests a batch of ice, an electric heater heats up the whole ice maker.
There is a thermostat embedded in the ice maker. It must cool back down to approx. 12 degrees before making the next batch. The colder the freezer compartment, the faster the cycles.

If the cubes are too small then that is usually caused by a blockage in the water filter if your unit has one, or the water valve that feeds water to the ice maker is getting weak, or lastly the water supply to the machine has become partially restricted.

On extremely rare occasions the thermostat built into the ice maker goes out of calibration which can cause a delay in cycling and requires the ice maker to be replaced. But again, it is a very rare occurrence.

Water valve has 2 solenoid so solenoid for water dispenser could be working and one for ice maker may not be. Visibly inspect ice maker to see if water is in it.

Ice cream not firm


The freezer bowl is sensitive. Go ahead and thaw it out until you can hear the liquid swishing around inside - usually letting warm water run through it is sufficient for thawing. Then refreeze the bowl, making sure the bowl is sitting flat/level in the freezer. When making ice cream with this unit, letting the freezer bowl sit out for even 20 minutes can unfreeze it enough so that you only get sludge. Do not remove the freezer bowl until you are immediately ready to pour the ingedients into the bowl. You can even pre-chill your ingredients by letting the ingredients sit in the freezer for about 15 minutes - although I have found that this usually has the opposite effect of what you have just experienced --> the ingredients usually freeze up so fast that the mixing paddle is no longer able to turn.

Good luck!

Water dispenses, but no ice


there could be two [roblems with the ice make. #1 the line that feeds the water into the ice maker could be frozen inside where it dumps water into the maker. Take a hair dire and gentl thak pout the inlet line tha tthe water feeds into the maker. then reate that maker so that all the blockage is cleared. or #2 tej freezer need to be coolder. Don't rate these solutions unitl your problems are resolved because then i cannot post in the problem any more and also be sure too rate the so]lution after ypour problems are solved and rate accordingly. and gernerouosly. thanks for using FixYa.
